Pride on Screen: FRINGE! Shorts + Q&A
Wed 17th Jul 2019 @ 7:30 pm£5
FRINGE! SHORTS: THERE’S NOWT SO QUEER AS FOLK TODAY + Q&A
FRINGE! Queer Film & Arts Fest comes to Hull! A programme of short films curated by Martha Kate Margetson of Fringe! Fest in London. The best LGBTIQA+ storytellers and filmmakers explore the state of queer Britain today, from the ways that we see ourselves represented, to how we express ourselves, how we love, and how we fight for our rights. From local directors to global stories, queer people’s lives are shown in all their beauty and diversity. Filmmakers of these vital shorts will be in attendance.
One of the short films in the programme is from a Hull filmmaker Ruby Seddon-Wilson with THEY, THEM, THEIR. Ruby will be in attendance for a post-screening question and answer period along with Kai Fi’Ain, director of THE BROTHER.
